Maca comes in three forms, red, yellow and black; each with their own strengths. Red Maca has been shown in studies to promote prostate health, and along with all the benefits of regular maca, shows the best results for keeping skin young and healthy out of all three varieties.
Red Maca For prostate health
The 'standard' Maca is known as yellow Maca but there is growing scientific evidence that each variety (yellow, black and red) has different strengths in terms of its health benefits. Whilst the outside of this special root is either yellow, red or black - the inside is more or less the same colour.
Red Maca has been shown to be beneficial in reducing prostate size in rats with enlarged prostates when treated for 42 days with Red Maca.
A number of studies concluded that Red Maca reduces prostate size. In one study published in 2005 in the BioMed Central Journal, researchers gave rats Maca for 42 days. They found that the prostate size reduced "significantly" when the rats were given red maca (read full article).
Anti-aging benefits for your skin
A study conducted in 2011 looked at the effect Maca had on skin that was damaged from ultra violet radiation in mice. Whilst the researchers concluded that all 3 Macas "prevented the development of sunburn cells, epidermal hyperplasia, leukocytic infiltration, and other alterations produced by UVB radiation", it showed that Red Maca specifically protected the skin and liver from increased damage to the skin by free radicals.
